Atmospheres combine Production Aesthetics and Reception Aesthetics. "Stage design is the paradigmatic example of this approach to atmospheres [Production Aesthetics]. On the other hand, however, atmospheres may also be experienced affectively, and one can only describe their characteristics insofar as one exposes oneself to their presence and experiences them as bodily sensations [Reception Aesthetics]."

FPS games give the player little control over narrative progression as opposed to the other extreme (e.g. racing or sports games) where "the player is in control of the progression and story outcome"

"... the game text is playable: it is only realized through play, and play is a lived social and cultural experience."

"One reason for comparing the playing of a computer game with a performance of oral narrative is that it foregrounds text as event, rather than as object. [However] the playing of games is iterative -- it is many text-events, all different, with a dynamic relation between the computer-game as textual resource or text in potentia, the player as a dynamic textual element, whose fingers and skills become no less a part of the game-system than the avatar's strings of code, and the player as cultural resource, interpreter and adapter of the game's resources in the production of fan art and writing."

"According to Gerald Prince's well-known definition a narrative is "the recounting (as product and process, object and act, structure and structuration) of one or more real or fictitious events communicated by one, two or several (more or less overt) narrators to one, two or several (more or less overt) narratees." Before going into the details of this definition it is important to note one of its most obvious consequences: "a dramatic performance representing (many fascinating) events does not constitute a narrative either, since these events, rather than being recounted, occur directly on stage." (Prince 1987, 58)"

"Players step into a dramatic position in relation to the fictional world -- defined by the very character they control."
"Having two heroes battling with certain tasks spread on a virtual stage filled with dramatic elements ... transforms the space between the virtual heroes in Common Tales into a valuable expressive element of the relationship between the two main characters."

Be not afeard. The isle is full of noises,
Sounds and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me, that when I waked
I cried to dream again."
